Journey toward the Longest Night

sacred-circle

Join an online gathering of women
on a journey toward the Longest Night

In this online circle of women, you’ll gather with kindred spirits who are drawn to the practice of self-awareness, compassion and consciousness. The yogic virtues will serve as our companion and guide. This seven-week, seven-chakra contemplative writing practice will shape a sangha (a communion) of hearts in a journey of inner preparation for the Longest Night.

Timing:

Circle opens: The week of October 30 with the dark of the New Moon when the veil between the worlds is thin.

Circle completes: The week of December 18 with the light of the Full Moon as we approach Winter Solstice/Longest Night.

Women:

This online circle is open to all women, regardless of age, location or yoga/writing/circle/chakra experience. Reflection, sharing and response will take place on the password protected pages of The Journey with the Chakras web pages.

Participation:

Participation will vary from person to person and from week to week. Each woman decides when she participates within any given week, and how much time she devotes each week. Time might vary from a few moments to an hour or more, according to each women’s schedule and inclination/inspiration.

Yogic Virtues:

The yogic virtues will serve as our companion on the journey toward the Longest Night. These are aligned with the 7 chakras to create a contemplative, reflective and responsive experience that is both inspirational and whole.

By grasping the flower of a single virtue, a person lifts the entire garland…”
